Multiple integer overflows in Python 2.2.3 through 2.5.1 and 2.6 allow context-dependent attackers to have an unknown impact via a large integer value in the tabsize argument to the expandtabs method as implemented by (1) the string_expandtabs function in Objects/stringobject.c and (2) the unicode_expandtabs function in Objects/unicodeobject.c. NOTE: this vulnerability reportedly exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2008-2315.
